A Letter from the President | May 2022

From the President’s Desk

A message from Wendy J. Roundtree, APR

Pixie dust, blueberries, and celebratory APR cupcakes. Before the summer heat completely takes over, we found a number of ways to take advantage of the spring season!

First, thank you to Walt Disney World Resort for sharing insights during our April program as they celebrate their 50th anniversary. In case you missed it, be sure to dig into the recap below. I also want to thank our friends at the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association who helped make our “Family Day at the Farm” one to remember. My little human barely made it to the parking lot before passing out (win for mom!).

Before you peruse through the rest of our newsletter, I do want to highlight two significant member benefits you do not want to miss:

ICON 2022 Scholarship
The PRSA International Conference 2022 (ICON 2022) will take place Nov. 13-15 in Dallas, TX. We are extending the deadline and will accept applications through next Thursday, May 19. The scholarship will cover the cost of registration for the conference.

SUNCON 2022 Scholarship
The PRSA Sunshine District Conference will take place on Friday, July 29 right here in Orlando at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management. The Radiance Awards Luncheon presented by Publix will also take place during the event. We are offering two scholarships for the event and the deadline to apply is Tuesday, May 31.

If you’re contemplating whether or not you should apply, let me be your personal cheerleader and say “do it!” As always, if you have any ideas or thoughts about how we can better serve you as a member of PRSA Orlando, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Thank you for your support!
